Thumbnails on main page are stretched :( (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm fairly new to WordPress so please pardon me if this is a silly question. I am using F8 Lite by GraphPaperPress and this is my website: http://www.aliakbarsahiwala.com/.

    The image thumbnails on my front page appear stretched and I don't know why. I have tried changing it but nothing seems to work. I fixed the first two picture's dimensions but it still doesn't work on my site. I tried putting the same picture on another person's website and the thumbnails appeared perfectly there.

    Does this mean I have to take a back-up of my entire site and reinstall WordPress? How do I do that? Is there any easier way as I am a complete noob at this.

    Please do let me know. Thanks in advance,
    Ali

    I had been having the same problem... I tried this and it seems to be working:

    1) Ensure that your image is 310x150px
    2) Set up your default image and thumbnail sizes: Click Settings - Media and set your thumbnail size to 310px wide by 150px tall. I also unchecked "Crop thumbnail to exact dimensions," although I'm not sure this does anything.
    3) Set your medium size images to 590px wide. Do not set a height.
    4) Set your large size images to 950px wide. Do not set a height.

    Now give it a try... Hope that works!
